Where Does Guilt Come From?
No one can make you feel guilty. They can trigger the guilt that is inside of you, but that is a gift they are giving you so you can heal. Bless them for giving you that gift. Whey do we get angry and feel small when we feel guilty, and why do we tyr to turn the blame on the other person? No one likes to feel guilt because it always reminds us of the "original" guilt that formed when we falsely beleived we had separated from God. So when you feel guilty around somthing minor, like not doing something your spouse asked you to do, this guilt arises from the original guilt. Because it is so hard for us to look at, (it is at a very deep and unconscious level), we get angry and attempt to project this guilt away from us, blaming the other person (or group, nation, etc). We believe that if we faced this guilt, God would see our sins and punish us by the death we believe we deserve. But this is all false, and only by bringing the guilt into the Light can we heal it.
